Very informative and easy to read.

Having Lupus and Fibromyalgia I have followed a number of recommendations by Dr. Brownstein and highly recommend this book. I have heard of using antibiotics for Lupus before but no doctors ever recommended it. Very informative and easy to read. The fact that one's thyroid might be one of a number culprits in many of these diseases helped me out because until I got the right doseage my Fibromyalgia was off the charts. Also the idea of eliminating wheat and gluten was a great move. I subscribe to this doctors monthly newsletter and friends and family have benefitted from many of his recommendations. I say buy the book and read it and don't just go by the one comment you won't be disappointed as long as you follow his recommendations.

Like many books of this nature, there is a constant barrage of "case studies" presented to make a 100 page book 220 pages.
While I found the arthritis information of value - such as most Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers ( and other chronic illness patients )
have a mycoplasma infection and that they will often experience very significant relief from antibiotics treatment ( mentions Minocin and Clindamyacin )
- along with proper vitamin and mineral support. He does go into some details on this and states best results are experienced when administered by IV.

I am greatly disappointed however on the information regarding Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. The ideal ratio of omega-6 to
omega-3 fats is 1:1. Our ancestors evolved over millions of years on this ratio. Today, though, our diets in the US are closer
to a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 may average anywhere from 5:1 to 50:1 !! This ratio is NOT mentioned and I really find this bothersome
as the implications are serious, and most health newsletters / publications are always mentioning this. This out of whack balance alone
is said to be the cause of much illness in our population today.

In summary - I am happy I got the book but feel it is incomplete on some important things such as this.

It is nowhere near my expectation. It is not worth the money I paid for. It does not zero in on arthritis alone and there is a definite loss of focus.

I liked the book but was disappointed that it did not contain a list of foods that help with the condition.

Great book that gives us old creaky people some hope for a cure. Turns out my alternatives doctor is of the same persuasion as the author, and so am having the recommended tests done to test for the bacteria.. Book was not expensive, and came in two days with Prime. Am giving thought to ordering Kindle for convenience, just can't make a decision as to which one. Like all things these days in purchases, there are too many choices.

Very good information about the possible cause of arthritis and possible treatment of the disease instead of just treating the symptoms. Gave information on how you can work with your physician to find the cause of your arthritis. The author listed labs that will also work with your physician to test specific samples that would be used to determine an arthritis cause. Other chronic diseases were mentioned like fibromialagia and chronic fatigue syndrome that may be caused by some of the same things.
Really makes the reader take a look at lifestyle and diet choices too that could help eliminate arthritis symptoms or improve the disease. Gives the reader a hands on approach to help seek the cause of their chronic disease.

I was recently diagnosed with RA arthritis and found this book full of new information. As I am an alternative medical person by nature, I will probably go to see him.

The book tends to repeat itself for a lot of the content as if the reader needed to be reminded of what they just read. The medical
facts and some of the suggestions were useful, but some of the language in the text was not for a layman.
